Ecology of Food and Nutrition (ECOL FOOD NUTR)

Publisher: Taylor & Francis (Routledge)

Journal description

Ecology of Food and Nutrition is an international journal of the nutritional sciences in the broadest sense. It emphasizes foods and food systems and their utilization to satisfy human nutritional needs, but it also examines nonfood factors that contribute to the spectrum of nutritional conditions, such as obesity and leanness, malnutrition vitamin requirements and mineral needs. The content scope is thus wide; articles may consider dietary and nutritional status issues arising from cultural prohibitions, traditional usages, and problems of marketing and transportation. Food nutrients and toxicants, additives and food quality are also topics considered, as are ethnobotany, agriculture and development. Many of the journal's contributors are trained in nutrition, nutritional science and food technology, but the behavioral and social sciences, including psychology, geography and economics, are also represented, as are the food industry and its critics. The perspective of the journal is ecological and holistic in its treatment of food and nutrition issues, and represents a wide range of disciplines, separately or combined. The Institute of Scientific Information Journal Citations Report for 2002 ranks Ecology of Food and Nutrition 45th out of 50 journals in Nutrition & Dietetics (Social Science), with an impact factor of 0.215.
